School Accounts and Payments
We have received many payments already for items or donations that correspond with the start of year forms that were issued at the end of last year. Items on these forms will not be loaded onto Edge school accounts until the timetable settles, usually around the beginning of March. Until then, most payments will sit in the account as an unallocated credit until such time as the items are entered and the payments are then allocated. This is a very complicated and lengthy task and we appreciate your patience as we endeavour to ensure that all school accounts are correct. Request for payments will be emailed by the end of March when the student accounts are up to date.
We appreciate all the payments we have received to date. If you would like to make regular automatic payments throughout the year, we encourage this. The school’s bank account details are as follows:
St Peter’s College
12 3434 0012635 000
Reference: Your child’s name
If there is a specific item you would like to pay for, please also use this in the reference. Otherwise we will allocate the payment at our discretion. If you have more than one child you are paying for, we encourage you to have separate payments for each child to ensure correct payment allocation. Please also update any existing automatic payment references with the correct reference details.
Camp and Trip Donations
Providing school camps and trips to our school community is heavily reliant on donations being made by parents/caregivers towards the costs of organising these. Without financial donations for each attending student, the school would simply not be in a position to provide the outdoor experiences in our amazing own backyard that we have always had the privilege of being able to undertake.
As well as Deep Cove and Borland Camps, some subjects also have trips included in the donation amount and without these those subjects would not be in a position to offer these amazing experiences.
Tax Credit Donation Receipts
You will be able to claim a tax credit after you have paid your donations, from Inland Revenue at the end of the tax year. You can find more information on ird.govt.nz/donations. We are happy to issue a donation payment receipt for this purpose, on request.
